That was using another 5 mOhm resistor on top, not 7 mOhm.
I have only seen 2.5 mOhm, 3 mOhm, and 3.08 mOhm resistor values tested by anyone. We have no idea if 2.917 mOhms is too low. I suspect it is not because 2.5 mOhms worked for me with some workloads, like Firestrike Extreme. I think 2.5 mOhms is only barely too low.

Going up to 10 mOhms lowers the increase in the power limit a good amount, 50% more power instead of 62.5% with 8 or 71.4% with 7.
Where I sourced them everything was easy to buy, in ~1 mOhm steps from 1 to 20+ mOhm. 3s, 5s, 6s, 7s, 8s, 10s, 12s, or whatever you wanted for about a dollar each.
